EPD Town Hall meeting at Civic Center


The Evanston Police Department will be hosting a Town Hall meeting on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. in the Parasol Room at the Lorraine Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The meeting will focus on Drugs, Gangs, and Unsolved Homicide Cases.  The meeting is the second in a series of town hall style meetings hosted by the department.  The first meeting focused on Cultural Awareness and Community Policing.

Each meeting will focus on a specific variety of topics and issues shared by citizens during our previous town hall meetings facilitated by Dr. Gilo Kwesi Logan.  Additionally, each meeting will cover police policies, procedures, and protocols as related to the topics of discussion.  

The objective of these meetings is to engage in a positive and productive conversation with the community while working to develop feasible solutions to community concerns.  Subsequent town hall meetings will focus on the following topics:

Social Media, Crime Prevention and Community Policing – Date TBD
Rights, Responsibilities and Reasonability in Evanston – Date TBD

The Evanston Police Department would like to invite citizens to come and engage in thoughtful discussion.  The format of the meetings will consist of a facilitated panel discussion, followed by a question and answer session.  

The department is asking citizens to submit questions prior to the meeting that are directly related to the meeting topic.
